Instagram was popular before and after it got released and is still now growing rapidly since it was purchased by Facebook. Facebook simply just threw $1 billion to pick up Instagram and Instagram has now reported some statistics since it was purchased by Facebook, and use of the application has grown significantly. Let me tell you that instagram is an application that is based on photography.
In the month of May of 2012, Instagram had 50 million users and recently this week Instagram announced that it has 80 million users, a more addition of 30 million users to the service since May. The figures show that this isa major increase in recent months also Instagram noted that users had shared almost 4 billion photos so far.
Early in its life back in October of 2010, Instagram had 100,000 users. Two months later in December of 2010, the photography application hit 1 million users. A year later in December of 2011, Instagram had 14 million users, and five months later the service boasted 50 million users. The use of Instagram is growing very rapidly.
